The Pokémon Company International has revealed that you can use the Celestica Flute in Pokémon Legends: Arceus to “summon special Pokémon that will let you ride them.”
This mysterious instrument has been passed down through generations of Hisui’s people, allowing you to ride Pokémon to move faster on land, to cross bodies of water or soar through the skies.
There are three Pokémon that have been confirmed to be rideable in the upcoming game:
- Wyrdeer: Wyrdeer has powerful, sturdy legs, and riding upon it will allow players to gallop across the land at great speed and jump to leap over obstacles.
- Basculegion: Basculegion can carry players on its back, allowing for travel across bodies of water. Basculegion is also able to launch itself from the water’s surface, letting players leap effortlessly over obstacles in their way.
- Hisuian Braviary: Hisuian Braviary will let players soar through the skies. From up in the air, players will also be able to get a good look at what kinds of Pokémon live down below and what kinds of items might be found.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 28th January 2022.
